TA Training & Development Workshops
Each quarter the Department of Electrical Engineering Student Services hosts a lunch workshop series for all EE Teaching Assistants. The workshop series provides an oppotunity for EE Teaching Assistants to come together and discuss their experiences and concerns as TAs, while additionally exploring topics that are central to their development and training as teaching assistants.
Lunch is provided at each of our workshops. If you believe you may need accommodations during the workshop series, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may plan a way to meet your needs. We hope that you will join us.
